Help! Spammers are hijacking the mellowmonk domain!

The Monk needs your help!

It seems that spammers are illegally using the mellowmonk dot com domain in "reply to" addresses in junk email they're sending through cyberspace.

I know that they're doing this because undeliverable emails are being bounced to me.

Unfortunately, the bounced emails I get don't contain the information I need most: information about the actual sender. I'd like to track this person down and let him do some serious, long-term meditation in Sing-Sing.

If anyone has received one of these junk emails, please forward it to me. Or, if you have any suggestions on what to do (my domain hosting service basically told me to call the cops), please drop me a line at [monk at mellowmonk dot com].

This unlawful use of my domain name is a form of identity theft that could do serious damage to Mellow Monk's name and reputation, as people are getting spam from disreputable parties that appears to be affiliated with Mellow Monk.

Your assistance is appreciated!
